Walk 184 – Divach Falls from Drumnadrochit

Divach Falls (pronounced 'Jeevach') can be reached via a short 300m walk from the car. But that's no fun! So try one of these longer routes instead and see a bit more of the area while you are there.

  Extensive car parking at Drumnadrochit car park, A82 (IV63 6TX). Bus services from Inverness stop here.

Route 1 – Divach Falls from Drumnadrochit – 4.6 miles

A circular walk through ancient woodlands and along pretty single track roads to reach the spectacular Divach Falls. Good path surfaces all the way. Some gentle inclines. This is the easier of the two routes.

Route 2 – Divach Falls via Craigmonie and Balmacaan Woods – 5.8 miles

The slightly longer and more challenging option, this route takes you on a magical mystery tour of the beautiful Craigmonie Woods along part of the Affric Kintail Way, before heading along peaceful single track roads to reach Divach Falls. An easy return on paved surfaces then awaits.

Impressive Giant Redwood just off the main path. An interpretation board beside it invited us to feel the bark and what a surprise when we did! Won’t give anything away – try it and see 🙂
These green/red marker posts led the way through the woods. Often there wasn’t much in the way of a visible footpath so they were really handy!
A fair distance into the woodland section of the walk, the path started to open up onto a pleasant wide grassy path looking over fields to the right.
Walking along the quiet country roads leading up to the Falls car park, I was in awe of the sheer amount of moss growing on the tree branches. I knew from spending time out and about with some of my Countryside Ranger friends that this was a sign of good air quality. Wow, the best air quality I’ve ever come across in that case, was right here!
